We are all on the same team

2017 U.S. Kubb Open

Kubb United is partnering with Beloit Parks & Leisure Services and Visit Beloit to present the 2017 U.S. Kubb Open.  Concessions will be provided by the Beloit Youth Hockey Association and will include beer.  We'd also like to thank Platinum Level sponsor DuPont for their generous donation and Gold Level sponsor JP's Backyard Games for providing the kubb sets.

The tournament will take place on Saturday, August 5, 2017, at Riverside Park.  Registration begins at 7:30AM, an all-team meeting is at 8:30AM and play starts at 9:00AM.

The tournament will be 2-person only teams.  We welcome teams from anywhere in the world.  Please register by filling out the form below and clicking "Pay Now".  The cost is $40 per team.

We are going to paint every pitch (weather permitting) and use the Kubb United Rules for Open Play.  There will be 8 qualifying rounds of single games each having a 25-minute time limit.  After that the top 16 teams will be seeded in the championship qualifying bracket.  In the championship qualifying bracket, teams will play best 2 out of 3 matches with the 8 winning teams going to the Championship Bracket and the 8 losing teams to the Consolation A Bracket.  Teams 17-32 will be seeded in the Consolation B bracket, and teams 33-48 will be in the Consolation C Bracket.  All consolation matches are single games with a 30-minute time limit.
